Reduced Slot Availability during Southern Runway Rehabilitation (SRR)

From 16 April to 30 May 2019:

The Southern Runway (12R/30L) at DXB will be closed for a period of 45 days to facilitate major refurbishment works. This will leave only one operational runway (Northern Runway 12L/30R) which will have an impact on the normal operating capacity of the airport.

Private jet flights will be permitted at DXB during SRR, though during airport peak hours, runway slot availability will be limited. We are working closely with Dubai Airports to avail any spare slot capacity for our clients and urge any aircraft operators planning trips into DXB to submit their handling requests at the earliest opportunity. Please note that slots will be confirmed within 7 days of the flight.

16 April 2019

  • Full-time closure of the Southern Runway commences at 15:00 hours local (11:00 UTC)
  • Single runway operations will continue using the Northern Runway
  • Regular maintenance on the Northern Runway will thereafter be conducted every Sunday during the full airport closure period between 16:00 hours and 18:00 hours local (12:00 to 14:00 UTC)

30 May 2019

  • Southern Runway handed back to ATC at 18:00 hours local (14:00 UTC)
  • Dual runway operations will resume and the runway maintenance period will switch back to the current regime
